New sponsorship demands Addington to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital-reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat and stay flat. Out of money, his expense-accounts canceled, and betrayed by his buddies, Addington is backed into a harsh corner. He must endure the insanity that comes with no waves or give into "the Man" and his new, reality-altering machines.
    Aided by his manager, his mentor, his guardian-angel and his summer lover, Addington has a chance of keeping his cool, but it's not going to be easy. The dude needs a wave, and there's never been a drought like this. (Anchor Bay Entertainment)

  1. Someone else's vacation photos are never much fun to watch, and this beach party is a drag for onlookers.
  2. 30
    You can stick around for the only funny line, which involves a breakfast burrito, but the smart surfer would head for the hills and Willie's goat ranch.
  3. From "Hands on a Hard Body" to an 89-minute ogling of another hard body: It boggles the mind that 11 years after his engrossing documentary about an endurance competition to win a truck in Longview, Texas, filmmaker Bindler has channeled his talents into this regrettable comedy.
  4. The film is awash in doobies and breasts, clich├ęd cinematic language and clumsy exposition. It's reminiscent of the stoner-culture movies of the late '60s and early '70s but without the naive fun.

    Hapless, laughless movie.
  6. Lacking even the train-wreck appeal of a brainless stoner comedy like "Half-Baked," Surfer, Dude is a numbing experience at just 89 minutes.

    Hollywod makes crap all the time, and we are tired of the Johnny Deeps and the Pitts and Angiulinas ,first it is good to see a new cast, bew Hollywod makes crap all the time, and we are tired of the Johnny Deeps and the Pitts and Angiulinas ,first it is good to see a new cast, bew faces. The movie has flaws , ok , it seems to be made on a tight budget , some overseas locations would ve increase the rate. But it`s too hard to digest for these days` middle class serial guy o woman paying a mortgage , but if you ever had the chance to be inside a group of surfers and interact with them , well , you can no ask for more than waves, reggae,flirting , muscles and pot . The movie about surfers that you expect, `9 to 5 dude` doesn`t exist and it wont exist. Expand

    Really?! This was just an excuse to see nauseatingly good looking people prance around half naked wallowing in their own sense of Really?! This was just an excuse to see nauseatingly good looking people prance around half naked wallowing in their own sense of self-satisfaction of awareness of being eyecandy, granted the chicks were pretty cute, but that's what Maxim is for. Matt McConaughey has merit to be good actor, but now he's become one of those douchebags who knwingly relies on his looks in films. Don't believe me, look at tall the pieces of grabage on his resume that are all of the romantic comedies he's ever done. Time to Kill was good, he did well though Sam Jackson and Kevin Spacey stole the show. Expand
